Steam sales are pretty common now. It doesn't mean they're not great. Doesn't mean they don't send us broke, just that... we're used to them.
We're also used to them mostly being populated by the same games.
*COUGH* Hotline Miami, Braid, Super Meat Boy *COUGH*
This sale is a little bit different.
This sale is based on the upcoming Steam Awards. Meaning that the nominees are almost all discounted. Meaning that the games are mostly all pretty awesome.
Oxenfree is too goddamn good at US$4.99
The Witness is 50% off at US$19.99 and is probably still my favourite game of 2016.
Hyper Light Drifter is 40% off at US$11.99
Dark Souls 3 is still full price but who gives a shit cause it's amazing.
XCOM 2 is 50% off at US$29.99
Very good stuff.
